2016/17: Lye Town (Midland Football League Premier Division; match postponed)

It was incredibly satisfying to see Coventry Sphinx finally get the better of Shawbury United. They'd previously beaten us twice, despite our being marginally the better side at Wem in the FA Vase and squandering enough chances to beat them three times over in the league game a week later.

2016/17: Shawbury United (Midland Football League Premier Division)

Happy New Year. Today's match is the first Coventry Sphinx fixture of 2017 and we're certainly better off than we were this time last year. The festive period turned out to be something of a mixed bag in terms of both results and performances, but there was no great loss of momentum thanks to one stellar showing that broke up the two games that didn't go our way.
